God’s timing is perfect. The Bible tells us we do not and cannot understand God’s perfect timing but we do know the things He does are done at just the right time and if we lean on Him and wait on Him, He’ll inspire us, and guide us.
Have you had an experience where God lead you to do something, you did it obediently, and found out later God was really working through you? You knew without a doubt it was God’s doing. Maybe you sent a card, a note or text, a prayer, or maybe you called someone. It was something God nudged you to do and after you did it, He showed you it was from His will, His purpose, His control, and you feel so blessed that you had been obedient.
When our daughter was a very little girl, she needed a dresser and we were broke, living penny to penny. We had only $70.00 to spend in our checking account for food and necessities until the next paycheck. It was a Saturday and we went to the local indoor flea market for entertainment and to get out of the house. We had no plans to buy anything. We had no money. But there it was, the perfect dresser for our daughter! And it was $70.00! All the money we had to spend in our account. I was excited but my husband was frantic! “No, we couldn’t spend all we had on a dresser.” I told him we had to have faith in God. Reluctantly, he let me buy it. When we got home my husband got the mail. And in the mail was an unexpected check from his business. Guess for how much? Yes! $70.00!
We had to realize only God could work this out this perfectly and then we had to be thankful. We must learn to listen, hear, accept, and wait on our Lord more each day like we did that day. And then we must be grateful that He is always listening, hearing, accepting our pleas, and ready to act at just the right time. God is faithful and that is what we wait on.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 says, Then the Lord answered me and said, “Record the vision, inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come; it will not delay.”
